of a suburban detroit home. nbc's john yang with the latest. >> reporter: investigators took two soil samples from that shed. it's that area where an informant says 37 years ago around the time of jimmy hoffa's disappearance, he saw something being buried. police last week took ground-penetrating radar, looked at that radar and found indications of something about two feet beneath the ground. they've decided to go ahead, take these soil samples. they'll be analyzed by a forensic anthropologist at michigan state university. if they find evidence of human remains in those soil samples, then they'll start digging it up to see what's there. the police chief said from what he saw as they dug it out, they pulled out those soil samples, they were dark, murky earth. no immediate indications to the naked eye of something in there. but why they're going to be analyzed by a forensic anthropologist, to see if this is where the mystery of the disappearance of jimmy hoffa ends. maria. >> amazing. thanks so much. we'll keep following that. up next, find out why qatar's prime minister is investing the countr
